Belated post


Well it's been a while. Lots of races and not much internet access! The Euro season is over and I finished a resepctable 14th in my first season back. I've progressed with every race, only just missing out on a final. I didn't have too much luck at the last round in France, crashing in my motos day 1 pretty hard and then getting ridden over! Day 2 I was top 4 into the first corner in my semi but left the door open and didn't make the final. I'm taking a couple of weeks 'holiday' (i.e. riding the trails!) before getting stuck into training for next season which I'm really looking forward to.


I caught up with Downhill chick Vanessa Quin a couple of weeks back. Quinny had a bad fall last year breaking her neck in several places. It was fantastic to see she has made such a speedy recovery, back on her bike and finishing 6th at the World Cup! Awesome.


The worst thing about the last couple of months was hearing the news of Stephen Murray's terrible accident. I idolised Stephen when he used to race and win squirt of dirt and the accomplishments he went on to achieve in dirt jumping are just amazing. Stay Strong Stephen, the whole BMX World is behind you. You can show your support for Stephen by buying a T-shirt like mine, more details at http://www.bmxtalk.com/ & http://www.stephenmurray.org/.
